    Getting full Performance out of Wireless Card.

    i installed a new PCI wireless card ( Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN) today i got it to work but, i am not getting the right download speeds before i was downloading at 700kb/s and 1mb/s but now its downloading at speeds like 200kb/s 250 being the highest I've seen it all night

    and ideas?

    some more specs:
    01:0a.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4320] (rev 02)


    and i do have the Restricted driver installed and activated, also i was reading that restricted drivers slows performance, is that true?

    thanks guys
